Hi. I’m Terese a lifelong student of God’s amazing grace learning to accept His grace for my life and in turn extending His grace to those around me and in my sphere of influence. At the core of my heart is discipleship. One of my passions is coming alongside others teaching, learning and growing together by staying tethered to Jesus. Understanding we are to be discipled and to disciple and to see that active in our life.

I am certified in Women’s Ministry through School of Women’s Ministry (Baptist General Conference and NORCAL Baptist Conference). In conjunction I have completed 18 Masters units in Women’s Ministry through Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary now Fresno Pacific.

During the years of 2006-2017 I served on the Women’s Leadership Team, Preaching Team, Church Leadership Team and taught Women’s Bible Study at Brentwood Neighborhood Church in NORCAL.

I am a contributing author to Inspire Christian Writer’s “Love” (2017) and Kindness (2018) anthologies and currently writing a Women’s Bible Study.

One of my dreams is to have endless hours traipsing through God’s Word and discovering all the gems, nuggets and treasure and sharing those with others.

“All that passing laws against sin did was produce more lawbreakers. But sin didn’t and doesn’t, have a chance in competition with the aggressive forgiveness we call grace. So what do we do? Keep on sinning so God can keep on forgiving? I should hope not! If we’ve left the country where sin is sovereign, how can we still live in our old house there? Or didn’t you realize we packed up and left there for good?” The Message

    1. Mark, well, someone has to broach the subject about the sensitive issues. If you feel led by God, then all glory and praise to Him! If ever I am shocked I’ll just give that to Jesus, he’ll know what to do! Our authority in Him is to hold each thought captive to Christ Jesus. Amen?!!!

  3. Hi love your blog here,I am fascinated with the teaching of grace,I beleive it’s where a lot of Christians are brought down/struggle with their lives.
    I hope to learn more on the subject and broaden my horizons here in your teachings.

    1. Thank you, Limbiley. God’s grace is such a vast and wondrous thing and something I believe the enemy tries very hard at keeping us from accepting freely. I also believe God’s grace ties into our understanding of our identity in Christ. We can learn and accept together! Peace be with you.
